Don’t Compete with Microsoft™
The search for new software business models is partly based on the need to avoid Microsoft. The greatest fear of a software product developer is that Microsoft will offer your product for free, and venture capitalists will often ask entrepreneurs how they intend to compete with Microsoft. However, not competing with Microsoft is easier said than done - Microsoft took away Netscape’s oxygen by offering a competing product as a component of a bundled product.
